The Nudity issue, to those who accept this, May I ask you a question, Is it OK for you if your Wife, sister, mother, daughter or any relative do this?, stand nude in front of lots of people to be a nude model?? Mr. Proko , Mr.Marshall, I learn a lots from you, I does not know what is perspective before I saw your lecture Mr Marshall, and I really like learning from you. but when you say, Who care?, or why you open the video, it hurts, the problem is some people like to draw and want to learn but they cannot accept the nudity issue.
Are you a religious person ?
+mohamed hussin well then I have the best solution for you – become an atheist !!! Remember – AVOID all the things that block you from becoming a better artist ? It is unbelievable to me when I see that even religion can distract/block people on achieving their goals 😀 😀 😀 ! F**K religion , wake up man !
And to have a better perspective, there are many and I mean many religious art that involve nudity and the bible has quite some erotic/perv content.
If doctors avoided nudity for a religious thing then we would be screw.
You can still be a muslim (i assume that because of your name) but don’t worry too much about nudity. God is not going to punish you just because silly stuff like looking at a naked model. We as an artist need to learn anatomy to become good at drawing figures.
An architect needs to learn the basic structure of how buildings are made before he can design a house. Like wise with the human form you need to know how we are formed, how the muscles react to the different positions the bones take. The muscles have an affect on the skin how the body looks when it bends, twists, or leans. as an artist you need to learn how to build.
I’ve not read a lot of the Koran but I have read the Bible. The Bible doesn’t shy away from nudity or sex, in fact it is very open and honest about the good and not so good of both and it’s not written about in shameful tones. Man (as in humanity) had always made it something to be shameful of or glorified. It is simply a fact of life… It is how “we” view it. If you are looking at life models with a view to better understand your craft, how the body moves, how we are wonderfully made…or are you letting yourself ‘get off’ on it? I mean no disrespect.
+Miks Paukšte well not just religion, its also when you have friends or your parents telling you to be a lawyer or a doctor because they make a lot of money. I say f**k em as well and go with your passion 😀
+Imran Saputra ohhhh you are so right 😉 😉 😉

Yes it is, grow up.
Mohamed, I am sorry to have treated your concern so flippantly. I am going to write a response that will let you know why I felt irritated at the question, not in the hope of changing your mind, but out of respect for your sincerity. Give me some time….
OK, Mr. Marshall. I looking forward for your answer..
